The Valdez Beautification Matching Grant Program offers a financial incentive designed to assist local businesses or commercial property owners in improving the business setting for investors as well as providing an overall upgrade in appearance for residents and visitors.

2023 will be the eighth year of the program and continues with the expansion of eligible properties outside the core downtown district.

The 2023 matching grant program’s goal is to improve the overall aesthetics of Valdez through:

  • Improving the overall quality of building/structure façades in order to attract more local residents and visitors to shop, eat, and do business in Valdez.

  • Encouraging businesses to invest in additional aesthetic and design improvements including landscaping and art.

  • Encouraging and incentivizing property/business owners to reinvest in our community.

  • Encouraging grant applicants to strengthen the local economy through utilizing local vendors, contractors, and materials. 

The Beautification Commission (formerly Mayor's Beautification Task Force) is responsible for managing and implementing this program. These grants have helped to improve the aesthetics of many businesses in our community over the years and the commission firmly believes in the effectiveness of this public/private partnership.
